Today could be the day that John Smoltz secures another feather in his Hall of Fame cap. For whatever reason people fall in love with numbers divisible by 100, but whatever, I'm jumping on the excitement bandwagon.

As for the Braves, they're going for their sixth win in a row -- it really is a good feeling to be on a winning streak and playing better than .500 baseball.

As a fourth category in the NAHWAL today, pick the Nationals batter who will be John Smoltz's 3,000th strikeout victim. Extra points awarded for player plus the inning it happens in (you gotta get the player first). I'm thinking two points for picking the correct player plus a bonus point for the inning it happens in.
